Culture, Health and Human Development

The Graduate Certificate in Culture, Health and Human Development (CHHD) is administered through the Center for the Study of Culture, Health and Human Development, located in the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences (HDFS), in conjunction with affiliated faculty from several departments including Psychology, Allied Health Sciences, Pediatrics, Public Health, and HDFS.

Required Courses: HDFS 5020 and 5030.

In addition, students must take two additional courses chosen to complement each student’s particular interests and background (which may be courses that the student takes as part of their regular program or for other reasons) and complete a research study of publishable quality (which generally will be carried out in the context of HDFS 5030). CHHD projects are individually developed and supervised in consultation with the student’s own major advisor and the CHHD co-directors.

This certificate is offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
